Evaluations after the pilot study

If the pilot study is deemed satisfactory, the PhD candidate’s contract is renewed for the rest of the contract period. Throughout the contract period (and after it, if the dissertation has not yet been defended), PhD candidates and their supervisors are invited for annual evaluation meetings so that any problems with the candidate’s progress can be signalled and resolved. For these evaluations, the PhD candidate submits a progress report detailing the progress and a plan for the remainder of the contract period.  No external reader is involved in these evaluations and they do not constitute a go/no-go moment like the pilot study evaluation.
